You can have the car scanned for codes to tell you exactly what the issue is since the light is on. But I've read others having had a similar problem, and it turned out to be a faulty throttle body, others not. Have it diagnosed before replacing parts

I own a FS AWD. The throttle body is one choice but not the only one. If you are mechanical at all, purchse a can of SEAFOAM (under $10 at any auto parts store) and clean the throttle body yourself without removing it. A basic code scanner can be purchased as low as $20 new and will allow clearing all codes

just got back from the Ford dealership. The wrench indication light has gone on and off a few times now. He said it is a faulty indicator from the passenger side mirror. I still don't believe it...

If your car stalls when you get the wrench sign, you may need a new throttle body assembly. There seems to be an issue with that!
